Its that good You know, sometimes the most bitter pills to swallow do us most good. So it was with this book. Want to think in a totally Adult and Obstinately Responsible Way? Thisll do it! But yes, yes, I know - we dont like to lose our illusions. As the great R. Laing said, we are all like newborns who want to hang on to our nourishing placentas. Laing says that wound rarely heals! My old friend Ray was like that Bull, perpetually charging down at his friends from atop a mountain Ray, though, had no choice in the matter.
Ray was a badly beat-up vet, but he nevertheless always Sat High in the Saddle. His wife, however, on one of the social occasions we attended, tried to lighten the general mood a bit. She knew Ray was carrying his enormous weight of memories and we, Ours. So I played the clown with my neighbour that night - and I felt Ray start to distance himself immediately.
Misery not only Loves a commiserating kind of company - it requires it. I lost his loyalty at that moment. Ray, like this dose of reality in this book, was pretty intense. Good in small doses. But trauma can infect others - one reason his wife willfully remains so defiantly bright and bon vivant!
You gotta be like that sometimes, on social occasions. But it was by then too late, alas My friend, upon arrival at Wal-Mart, pulled up a chair. Ray glowered. But Ms Viorst, unlike Ray, leads us much more slowly and gracefully to do exactly that. To learn to Stand on Our Pain. Cause it will show you WHY you deserve a second chance! We ALL do. Pain, she tells us, can be traced to our trauma as infants. And it heals. You see, when we were infants we were Spontaneous.
But then We decided to play it safe. We made ourselves a Phony Ego. It was the Best Way, we decided, to get what we wanted. And look where we are NOW.
Quick now, here now, always - Pity the poor lost time stretching before and after! Why NOT break the chains? Why NOT climb out of the Rut? Real Freedom awaits.
